Within the Scout Group
Maybe twice a year, the Group will try to raise funds through the parents of the members.
This will be something sent home with the member with explanatory documentation. It likely to be for the sale of a box of items, a book of Group raffle tickets or promoting a deal with some supplier of goods (like wine, chocolates, etc) where that supplier has offered the Group a portion of the price of all goods purchased through the Group.
The Group Support Committee has found this method requires a lot of Group effort for a fairly low return. It also unfairly puts an extra load on the members' parents. For this reason, this method of fund raising will only be used when there is a good price incentive for parents to participate and the return to the Group is worth the effort.
